2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml Bottle. Its aroma is of sweet fruits and floral notes. It pours a golden amber with a fast fading white head. Its taste is a lot blander than you would expect given the aroma. It fact theres very little there except water and a dry bitter finish. Not a lot to write home about on this one - drinkable but lacking in flavour and character.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Home Bargains.
After a day tasting some really nice beers in Glasgow I came home to this and was brought quickly back down to earth.
Aroma of sugar and malt. Taste much the same. Too bubbly, too sweet, too boring. If this is an IPA then it’s like no other I’ve tasted.
Only positive is the price.

Bottle from Morrisons, Salford. Golden with a disappearing frothy head. Its strength is immediately evident, and whilst there’s some pale ale texture, it does not have much flavour or character. Slightly floral nose.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Quite a simple one with some nuts, bit of malt and some hops. Easily drinkable until that bitter ends hits you really tough. Well, you have got to like it. I did not. Therefore - average.
